    October 13, 2019 - Très bonne, typiquement rive gauche, subtilité du Margaux, apogée sans doute passée, paraissait légèrement plus fade qu'à Noël (de nouveau !), sans doute pas favorisée par le 2009 qui a suivi.

    July 15, 2019 - The wine is getting better. The finish had some bitterness and it would be hard to identify this as being from Margaux. The body fleshed out after being decanted for 1.5 hours. Open next in 2022 and hope it gets even better.

    January 26, 2019 - Wine seems to be at peak or just looking over it. Wine had great earthiness. floral notes but lacked a little on the mid palate. Finish was decent but I didn't think this would be over the peak yet

    December 31, 2018 - Very good, at maturity, maybe a bit past. Very pleasant and balanced.

    December 1, 2018 - Seems already beyond the top, slightly less powerful than expected (either closed between seconday and tertiary phase, or already slightly too late).

    (Château Rauzan-Gassies) Dark red violet color; berry and caramel nose; plush plum and red fruit with menthol note, could use more acidity though; medium finish

    (Chateau Rauzan-Gassies Margaux) There is very dark fruit here, showing a trace of vanilla, although it is not as open or expressive as some. The palate has a soft style, broad and although it certainly has a presence on the palate it lacks direction or focus. Nevertheless it has appropriate grip showing on the finish, and it is certainly a good effort for the estate. Decent wine.
